  • I have an all natural teething oil that works WAY BETTER then oragel! My son also wears a Baltic amber teething neclace and it works wonders!! LOVE IT!! I like the washcloths frozen. he has a blast sucking on them and forgets the teething problems. I havent had to do any of the oil or washcloths since the amber necklace though.

  • You don't mention an age - but we always used frozen bagels. They love to chew on them and anything they get off will be mushy enough for them to eat, but all of mine have been late teethers.

  • What is amber teething necklace?
    One of the oldest methods available is an amber teething necklace, which the infant wears around their neck helps relieve the pain associated with teething.

    Amber Teething Necklaces are designed and custom made for babies, all they have to do is wear it on their skin, to diminish the pain and discomfort caused by teething.
    Wearing baltic amber is a traditional European remedy for teething. Baltic amber teething necklace are made to be worn by teething children to provide them with natural pain relief from teething symptoms, it has succinic acid in the amber that when it is worn next to the skin the heat from your skin releases this natural acid and helps soothe baby.
